{Keri's Wedding} : The Bridal Shower

A few months back I posted about my dream bridal shower. Last weekend, my family and bridal party brought my vision to life with lots of bright pink, pretty signs, and of course, champagne. Everyone contributed something to the day. My mom hosted the event and made the entire wishing well herself! My future sister-in-law and bridesmaid created a memory jar and all the guests wrote little notes with memories or advice. Dan's mom made wine glass favors for all of the guests and my bestie and bridesmaid, Carly made a gorgeous collage of pictures. Here are just a few images from our afternoon with the ladies.

I look surprised in that first picture but I actually knew about the shower. I even arrived early as to not make a big entrance but as I walked in the door, everyone was standing there with cameras in my face. It was overwhelming! I can only imagine how overwhelming it would be if I didn't know about it!

Overall, it was such a fun day and I feel so blessed to  have such wonderful friends and family. I feel like my bridal shower officially kicked off the wedding festivities. Next up- the bachelor and bachelorette parties!
